But they are now complete and I am rather pleased with them. They are so easy to put together and use up any number of odd scraps. I don't do any planning for them beyond a mental game of teaming up the fabrics, and then I just let them evolve - mixing and matching velvet with ticking, vintage florals with classic ginghams as I go. The fabric linking these four together is denim, recycled from various jeans. Taking inspiration from Japanese Boro textiles and the quilts of Gees Bend I included seams, distressed hem lines and flip sides to show seam construction.
May be I should run a workshop and get everyone stitching these fun designs?
